Diane von Furstenberg Dress (thrifted)
Leather Boots c/o H&M
I've been trying to branch out with the lengths of dresses that I wear and after falling down the rabbit hole of minimalist blogs, I wanted to try ore of a simple look. This really isn't a minimalist look but I love the idea of simplifying an outfit and one's wardrobe. I'm a shorty so most minimalist looks won't look that flattering on me (Sigh, no awesome Rick Owens looks for me and these stumpy legs) but I am working towards not being such a fussy dresser. I look back at a lot of my earlier outfits and there was always so much going on, it was really juvenile looking and not that much fun. I've been feeling like I'm in a serious rut with all of the snow so looking at and trying new styles is a good way to break out of that.
I like the overall look although I suppose high heeled boots would have been more flattering on the leg line. At the time I liked the flat boots and it was easy to throw on but I think I might try this again and see if I can make it work better. (Or maybe I'll just steal a model's legs. That'll totally work.)
This jacket is actually a cropped style but because I have a short torso it ends up being regular length on me. I know I've been wearing it like crazy this past month but it works really well with any dress length and is big enough I can layer a few cashmere cardigans under it.
